Scarcliffe Primary School

Strive to Shine

At Scarcliffe Primary School we really value our pupil's views.  One way in which we gather their views and ideas is by having a school council.  The president and vice president were voted for by the pupils a democratic voting system.  The captains then advertised the roles that were available in school and interviews took place to get the right people for each role.

Meet our School Councillors:

Democratic Vote:

In order to choose our School Council President and Vice President, we held and election in school.  All candidates had a week to put a campaign together and delivered speeches to the rest of the children in a special assembly.  

After counting the votes we found out that Lewis and Maximas were chosen for the roles.  

Following the vote, it was time to advertise for the roles we needed filling.  Below is the document we sent out to the school:

Lewis and Maximas then interviewed the candidates based on their application forms and appointed the new school council.

Last Year's School Charity:

Last year we set ourselves a target of raising £500 for Ashgate Hospice.  Amazingly, we managed to raise a staggering £1214.69!  Well done to the children who organised the event and the school community for their support.  


Children in Need:

 Soon we will be taking part in Children in Need day.  Zac and Oscar G will have to go around classes to find out what they want to do to raise money for this very important cause.  Keep an eye out for pictures of the event.
